This is the second time we have stayed at tis fantastic place! The hosts, Mark and Kelly make you feel right at home. The breakfasts are to die for! It is so much fun roaming the grounds and watching the farm animals. It is so close to town but seems like you are far away. There is no better place... More

My sister, a mutual friend and myself stayed at Second Wind during the 4th of July holiday. Words can't truly describe what a pleasurable experience it was! Mark and Kelly are two of the kindest, most gracious people you could ever hope to meet. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay. Kelly served something new and different for breakfast...

We stayed at the Second Wind Country Inn B&B over the 4th of July weekend as repeat guests. We always look forward to our return visits! Innkeepers Mark & Kelly are gracious and welcoming. Their rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious! Our favorite part of the stay is interacting with the farm animals. Staying at the Second... More

We so enjoyed having you back again! And thank you so much for your kind offer while you were here. We appreciate you caring and friendship. Plus I have to add I'm so glad you enjoyed our silly animals...you never know what's around the next corner with them. Little Ruby now thinks she Houdini. When people ask what good are... More

We first visited second wind for our honeymoon and it was wonderful. It really is a wonderful, quiet little get away place. The food was amazing, I don't even have the words to describe what a wonderful cook Kelly is. They also have horses and donkeys, goats and as an animal lover that just made the trip even better. We... More

We always consider you who have honeymooned here "our honeymooners" and when the kids come we feel a sense of connection. We've loved having you here at Second Wind over the years and look forward to you coming back! More

I recommend you stay elsewhere. Our "suite" slept 8, with only one toilet! The room was dirty, mold in the bathroom and dust everywhere, including on the towels. We had to make up the fold-out bed ourselves. Breakfast was not ready at the time specified--behind a locked door. That could have been a good thing: breakfast was such we went... More

We stayed at Second Wind Country Inn B&B last week. The food was great and getting to know the host and hostess was special. They take excellent care of their guests and property. It was an absolutely experience.

We were in Ashland for the Whistle Stop Marathon and couldn't have been happier with the this little treasure! It was so clean, quiet and only about a couple minute drive from downtown Ashland. The food and the morning conversations around the breakfast table were great! Mark & Kelly - thank you!

We spent a long weekend at the B&B for a family gathering. The owners were very nice and accommodating with the needs of a large group with kids. Facilities were great. Setting was quiet and peaceful. And the kids, and adults, loved the animals. We were close enough to the lake, via a short drive, that we were able to... More

We read reviews and booked room One Month before travel. But after 4 hour driving, when we (whole family, including baby and senior) arrived 9pm, the owner didn't show. We called and were told our room was sold to someone else. Unbelievable! This is not the way of doing business.

This was a terrible experience for us too. We were very sorry we were not able to accommodate your family but we were glad we were able to make a connection for you to find a very pleasant lodging experience just a few miles from our inn. We were saddened that after the ping pong of communications we could not... More

We stayed here while attending a funeral in nearby Washburn. The inn is just a few miles outside of town about a five minute drive. It lies up a gravel drive in midst of a small farm. the owners run the Inn, the farm, and a side contracting business as well as raise their children quite a balancing act. They... More
